What is the purpose of the registry backup utility in DRA?
What is the DRARegRestore Utility?
The DRARegRestory Utility helps to resolve a possible issue with unexpected changes to the registry settings under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mission Critical Software\OnePoint\ when you install or uninstall Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) components or System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) components. DRA now performs a scheduled backup of the registry and stores the registry settings in a file under Program Files\NetIQ\DRA\BackupRegFiles. DRA maintains two backup files. If there is a change in the registry settings, you can use the DRARegRestore utility under the installation folder to restore the backed-up registry settings.
If you want to change the backup schedule, you need to change the registry settings in the BackupRegistry.Freq key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mission Critical Software\OnePoint\Administration\Modules\ServerConfiguration\. In the BackupRegistry.Freq key, the default value is Weekly 6 00:00, where 6 indicates Saturday. You can change the day by using any number between and including 0 and 6, where 0 indicates Sunday. You need to use the 24-hour time format when specifying the time.
